Personally, I think he would announce that leave winning, losing or...the way it happened.

We don't get to be Dr. Cal Lightman to read how GSP face lines and body language are showing clear lack of motivation for the game lately.

To me it seemed obvious that his mind was too full with other stuff and that he at least would take a longer break to clear things up or more likely retire completely. He always handled everything absolutely professionally, but in all the press conferences during the last year you could see that the pressure on him was getting worse and worse and he seemed to be close to a burn out.

Tons of rumblings beforehand that leads to thinking he would have either way. But just weird that it came out so odd if he indeed knew. Seems he would of just knew what he was saying and not seemed so on the spot about it. But then again I don't know what it is like to get cracked by Hendricks for 25 min, so that may have had something to do with it.

I don't think he planned to say anything in the cage after the fight iirc Rogan asked him a question about what comes next or something about a rematch and he kind of stumbled into it and then Rogan went nuts.

I really don't see the shock or anger, it was hinted at a lot before the Henricks bout and honestly I thought he looked unmotivated in the Diaz fight.

For all he asked and wanted that fight, I doubt he was unmotivated. If anyone looked unmotivated in that fight it was nick.

Just watched the press conference. It's a shame about the UFC post fight presser fiasco.

That said, GSP appears happier than he has in ages, and that's what matters. Everything else is in the past.

Agree. GSP asked for that fight and said how he wanted to get Diaz off his back. He was motivated and he fought a decent fight. We all knew GSP had no chance in hell at finishing Nick, but he snuffed him out pretty well. Diaz seemed unmotivated form bottom.
